The Boston Flower and Garden Show is underway at the Seaport World Trade Center from now through Sunday and is a great place to get inspiration for your home garden. The show features garden exhibits, vendors, lectures and a market area to buy plants and all sorts of other garden related products.
My mom and I visited this morning, and it was fun to explore new plants, plant combinations, and garden structures, to get some ideas for upcoming design projects.
Here are a few of my favorite finds.
|Hellebore ‘Ivory Prince’ – Hellebores are one of the earliest flowering plants; they come in a variety of colors and are an especially welcome site at the end of the winter.|
|Pinus parviflora ‘Goldilocks’ – I love, love, love the bright yellow cones!|
|Pieris japonica ‘Dorothy Wycoff’ – This evergreen shrub is so versatile; with fragrant bell shaped flowers in the spring, gorgeous red fall foliage; and it works in full sun to full shade!|
|Fothergilla ‘Mt. Airy’- A native, deciduous shrub that blooms early in the spring. It’s orange fall foliage makes it a great shrub for the fall garden|
|A gorgeous vertical garden made entirely of herbs! Beautiful, useful and very fragrant.|
|I loved this whimsical play space for kids. Made by Wooden Wonders it’s appropriately called a “Hobbit Hole”|
It looks like another wintery March weekend is coming up, so head to the Flower and Garden show for a breath of spring!
